Walker, rolling up his sleeves and getting to work!(sarcasm):

He toured the Manitowoc Grey Iron Foundry and spoke at the private event organized by the Sheboygan County Chamber of Commerce after addressing the Wisconsin Charter Schools Association's annual conference at Blue Harbor Resort and Conference Center.

In Sheboygan, the Republican governor focused on job creation and economic recovery during the 30-minute address at the yacht club.

Did he point to anything concrete that was producing jobs? Any jobs? Usually, there's a specific jobs creation program these blowhards can point to. Anything? Or just more GOP promises. You know, like tax cuts for corporations, with the idea that somewhere, somehow, those tax cuts for corporations would actually result in creating jobs. Hasn't worked for decades, but hey, maybe, right?

Tompoe, down here in Texas the governor and friends gave another tax cut to the wealthy and the pampered----to buy yachts. yep, yachts. the tax deal is worth 99percent in sales tax cuts. Now the way it works is a rich and pampered person buys a yachts over $250,000 and the over part is sales tax free. So if the person buys a 2o million dolar yacht they get a 99percent sales tax free of taxes--so the state gets a $15,225.00 sales tax then the rich guy has to pay no taxes. But if a working class stiff buys a $15,000.00 bass boat he gets to pay the full sales tax onhis puny bass boat. No tax break for the bass fisherman. Hows the sun up your way and the tax situation. How about those charter schools--coming your way and public schools are on the way out. Just imagine the rich can now charge off their private school cost to your tax dollar.

He was in the wrong place for talking about jobs---where was the working class who need those jobs--were not invited to the yacht club.
